Photoshop CS or Creative Cloud

Photoshop is perhaps the most important graphics software and is used in almost every graphics work flow. Whether you are a graphic designer, web developer, photographer, artist or hobbyist, having at least a good working knowledge of Photoshop is an important asset.

Understanding the file formats is key to knowing what software to use for a project. For a good explanation on this, please see my blog posting: So just what do I need to know?
